We are just under a month away from the highly anticipated third installment in the Total War Warhammer series, and the developers have just recently revealed the official PC system requirements. It's hard to imagine an RTS like Total War Warhammer would require so much storage space, but here we are in 2022.

Total War: Warhammer 3 launches on February 17th 2022, and as you would expect the PC specs aren't super demanding, and low-end gamers shouldn't have too much of an issue running the game. However, quite surprisingly, TW Warhammer 3 will require 120GB of storage space, which is exactly double the size of Total War: Warhammer 2.

So let's dive in and take a look at the official Total War Warhammer 3 PC system requirements...

Total War: Warhammer 3 Minimum system requirements

Total War: Warhammer 3 Recommended system requirements

*Some specs only listed a certain series of hardware, so we have picked out the closest matching components based on the hardware specs provided. - Let us know if you think there are any closer matching specs!

Your PC will need a graphics card that is at least as powerful as a GTX 1660 Ti or RX 5600 XT, paired with either a Core i5-6600 or Ryzen 5 1400 processor in order to match the Total War Warhammer 3 recommended system requirements. This setup should then deliver around 60fps performance on High graphics settings at 1080p. 8GB of RAM is also needed to run.

Total War Warhammer 3 needs a GPU that is at least as powerful as a GTX 950 or RX 460 coupled with either a Core i3-6320 or Ryzen 3 1200 CPU in order to match the minimum system requirements. This setup should then achieve around 30fps performance on Low graphics settings at 1080p resolution. 6GB of system memory is also needed for minimum (or 8GB if using an integrated GPU).

Overall, looking at the specs above, we recommend at least a 2 year old PC in order to play Total War Warhammer III smoothly.

As ever, remember you can always check out how well your PC can run the Total War: Warhammer 3 System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarks and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to the Total War: Warhammer 3 GPU benchmark chart and we also have a Total War: Warhammer 3 Frames Per Second system performance chart for you to check.

Its basically 3 games worth of content combined into one, so those 120gb don't surprise me.

3 games if you own all of the previous games or dlc* You can still fight against them but you cant play as them.

I really wish they would make a new game that brings back base building, i loved Dark Crusade and Soulstorm the most, then it went downhill from there for me
